    I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was very well designed and touched upon many areas of applied linguistics with a good mix of theory and practice. The tutors on the course have a different expertise and made the whole learning experience varied, stimulating and thought-provoking. At each key stage the participants received some feedback which added to the positive and interactive nature of the course. Overall I would definitely recommend it as an introduction to applied linguistics and language teaching.
